Dental Implants in Pomona
If you don’t replace a missing tooth, you may see a decline in oral health and the loss of additional teeth. In fact, studies show that when a missing tooth isn’t replaced, up to 20% of neighboring teeth are lost in the next 4 to 8 years. If you have an incomplete smile, you need to know about dental implants.
A Lifelike Alternative
State-of-the-art dental implants closely imitate natural teeth because they are the only dental prosthetic to feature a replacement tooth root and crown. With an implant, a small, surgical-grade titanium post serves as a tooth root to secure a custom crown. We provide single implants to replace individual teeth, as well as a few implants to secure dentures, partials, and bridges.

At your consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and jawbone density. If you appear to be a good candidate for implants, our Periodontist will schedule a simple surgery in which he will insert the tiny posts into your jawbone. Precise placement is crucial to success, so we use advanced scanning technology to determine the ideal location for your implants. You’ll receive one post for every tooth to be replaced, or a few implant posts to secure a prosthetic.
The Finishing Touches
Once your jawbone fuses with the posts, which can take a few months, the dentist will attach your custom-made replacement teeth. Until then, you can wear temporary teeth. After the permanent restorations are placed, you’ll experience renewed oral health, increased confidence, and a smile that looks and feels completely natural. Whether you’re chewing steak or a caramel apple, implants do the job of healthy, natural teeth, and they create a smile that’s absolutely wonderful.
